A PARKING ticket issued to a March woman has been cancelled after the Cambs Times stepped in to help.
Katy Vawser was handed a ticket for staying in Sainsbury's car park longer than the two-hour maximum period allowed.
But Euro Car Parks, which enforces parking at the Mill View store, said on Tuesday it would cancel the ticket while people were getting used to new rules.
Richard Derks, of Euro Car Parks, said: "The car park is a two-hour maximum stay and two-hour no return.

"We have just started operating within the last two weeks and we understand it will take some time for people to get used to it.
"The ticket was issued rightly and for the first few weeks we have been willing to be lenient, but from Monday we will be enforcing tickets and there will be no let-off."

Miss Vawser was hit with the ticket on Saturday after two trips in her car to Sainsbury's. She first went at about 11.30am and returned home a short time later.
When her father Tony returned from work at Chatteris-based carrot growers Bartlett's at about 1.30pm, they decided to return to Sainsbury's to complete their shopping.
After finding the ticket on their vehicle, Mr Vawser was told to contact the car park attendant - but it was believed he had gone home at 3pm.
"I was gobsmacked," said Mr Vawser. "I have never known anything like it before."
Miss Vawser, 25, said: "I am happy it is being cancelled but people are not going to wait two hours to go back there.
"They might as well have a pay and display or a ticket car park which would be a lot easier.
